Consequently, at the moment when h = 5 and A = 25 , the base length is changing at a speed = 2 cms/min . keywords: speed, related rates 019 (part 1 of 1) 10 points A 15 foot ladder is leaning against a wall. If the foot of the ladder is sliding away from the wall at a rate of 6 ft/sec, at what speed is the top of the ladder falling when the foot of the ladder is 12 feet away from the base of the wall? 1. speed = 23 3 ft/sec 2. speed = 22 3 ft/sec 3. speed = 8 ft/sec correct 4. speed = 7 ft/sec 5. speed = 20 3 ft/sec Explanation: Let y be the height of the ladder when the foot of the ladder is x feet from the base of the wall as shown in Fgure...
